                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Can nothing change the status quo?  Running Deer, you've defeated all my
teammates, or nearly, I haven't been keeping track.  I would gladly have handed the
title to you just to make a change in my life.  I guess it's too much.
     You can call me a teaching fool, if you feel like it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHELUM games.  A new guild, TL;DR, entered JHELUM with 
a clash this turn, showing off a 5-0-0 record.  Indeed, a worthy addition to the city 
guilds.  JACK RUSTLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, M. CHARDINEE put down BRAVE 1, causing him to 
lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has PETE MASTIFF in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHELUM as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Brave 2 -- Why couldn't you join your flagship gladiator (not that he looks like a
ship, much less with a flag) Running Deer in losing today?  I wouldn't have minded.
-- Red Hammer

The Captured Orc was a fine specimen, but smaller than I really like. -- Germaine
Sheppard

The Dangerous Criminal, he says his name is, ah, "Radziff the Hook," got away with it
again.  I don't like him, and I don't trust him, and if a wall were to fall on him as
he walked through some alley, it would be fine with me. -- Mat'ari

Tell me again why we're supposed to consider the Osksians our friends?  Bumch of
wimps. -- Jack Rustle

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
